Little Talbot Island State Park
With more than five miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches, Little Talbot Island is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Maritime forests, desert-like dunes and undisturbed salt marshes on the western side of the island allow for hours of nature study and relaxation. The diverse habitats in the park host a wealth of wildlife for viewing, including river otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats and a variety of native and migratory birds.
Surrounding surf and tidal streams present excellent fishing for bluefish, striped bass, redfish, flounder, mullet and sheepshead. Other popular park activities include hiking, kayaking, beachcombing, surfing and picnicking.
** This is a rescheduled reservation Linley and I made because of the storm on Labor Day. There is still lots of availability for reservations, but you do have to book early (as most of you know). We know it is close to other trips, but this was the best weekend we could find.
I enjoy tent camping, kayaking and spending time with friends who enjoy the same.
